Drink Truck!

Think Food Truck but for Beer & Wine. Complete with four beer keg tappers, the truck is essentially a pub on wheels rolling into events throughout St. Louis, MO providing a much-needed dose of social lubricant. Taking pride in sourcing craft beer from local breweries. Not a beer fan? Not a problem as Barley and Vine also serves up canned cocktails and wine. Plus, there are even alcohol-free options for the non-drinkers at your get-together. No guest will feel left out at Barley and Vine. All this on-point alcohol will help your guests loosen up in style.


A movement within the St. Louis area that shines a light on the amazing things our innovative, tenacious, big-hearted people are doing. It’s supported by a region-wide collaboration of residents, local leaders, institutions, businesses, and nonprofits helping to tell our story. It’s a celebration of a region that insists on moving forward by bringing people and ideas together in bold ways that makes this a place where you can start something, you can get the support to stand out, and you can stay and make St. Louis yours.

Missouri State Humane Association

The Missouri State Humane Association (MoSHA) was founded to administer the license plate program by providing the public with the documents needed to secure their plates, collecting funds, working with the Department of Agriculture, and marketing the program. MoSHA is an independent, all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization that is not affiliated with any humane society, shelter or government agency. Organizations and agencies performing spay neuter services in their communities apply for grants provided by the funds collected from the “I’m Pet Friendly” license plate fees. Grant application information usually is posted in January, with applications due by the end of February. The Missouri Department of Agriculture oversees the grant process. A three-person panel reviews grant applications and awards funds.
